seem to realize that there will be no quick or meaningful intervention from america or the international community. and they are attacking opposition cities with impunity. the question tonight -- is it too late to stop gadhafi's violent attack on his own people? first, our regulars, e.d. hill and will cain. >> it was amazing to see the wisconsin state capitol on lockdown last night like a prison. police clearing angry protesters from the building. something seems to be completely lost -- i think it's important to know that collective bargaining is not a right, it's a privilege. >> and i've been looking at congressman king's hearings on the extent of radicalization in the american community. and i looked at statistics on the department of justice web site and saw this over 400 convictions for terrorist acts prosecuted since september 11. the vast majority related in some way to islamic terrorism. and i think we've got to talk about this. >> all right. amazing amount of stuff going on. a lot to talk about. first to the latest on libya. i want you to hear what one of ou

rages on the ground. yet president obama still hasn't answered the most basic question about america's military operations, what is our mission? because there are at least two totally different statements coming out of the white house. let's first listen to the president. >> colonel gadhafi needs to step down from power and leave. >> i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. moammar gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead and he must leave. >> but then moments ago on this network the deputy national security adviser contradicted the president saying america's policy in libya is not one of regime change. take a listen. >> as it relates to the specific question, wolf, we're not setting out with a policy of regime change here. we set out a very defined goal here which is we would shape the environment and enable our international partners to take over the no-fly zone, we're on the verge of doing that. >> which is it and how can you run a military operation if you don't know with clarity what your objective is? we'll ask john negroponte in a moment. first live to ar

said in this article. so i apologize for putting on my glasses, but you said, "america has been infiltrated on all levels by radicals who wish to harm america. they have infiltrated us at the cia, at the fbi, at the pentagon, at the state department. they're being radicalized in radical mosques, in our cities and communities within the united states." first, i've just got to ask you because i read this and it harkened back to the worst form of mccarthyism of the 1950s, who are these people? where are the names and what proof do you have that there are people who are radicals trying to undo our society in these institutions of government? >> well, i was talking about the muslim brotherhood project which has been presented as evidence in the holy land foundation trial in 2007 in texas, which is the largest ever terrorism trial taken by the united states government. and terrorism financing, where 108 guilty verdicts were handed down. in that trial, a project written by the muslim brotherhood, a 100-year plan for radical islam to infiltrate and dominate the west, was presented. the

leadership and emphasis on how america was going to step down. and he mentioned a couple of times that gadhafi must step down. and then he made a very puzzling comment and that was, regime change by force would be a mistake. gadhafi must have been somewhat comforted by that. it was then at least to some degree a counter to the president's statement, gadhafi must go, and if we end up with a situation where gadhafi reclaims power, we could see what we saw after the first gull war, a stalemate, a no fly zone and lasted for two years and didn't bring saddam hussein out of power. the reason why we wage war is to achieve a policy that we state. the present policy is that gadhafi must go. and i think there's every chance if we keep the pressure on, that gadhafi will be thrown under the bus. >> the libyan people themselves will successfully get rid of gadhafi. he suggested that, yes, the military mission that the u.n. and the nato, the arab leg have authorized is limited to protecting civilians and the no fly done and all of that, but he said that the u.s. goal still is that gadhafi must

would be limited in time and scope. our mission has been to use america's unique capabilities to create the conditions for the no-fly zone and to assist in meeting urgent humanitarian needs. >> earlier i spoke with elise jordan, a speechwriter for clinton's predecessor, condoleezza rice. she also worked with the national security council. elise, thank you very much for being with us. so is the u.n. involvement limited in time and scope, or are we taking it over? >> i would disagree that it's going to be limited in time and scope. and i think that you are not alone in being confused about what's going on. i think confusion is really the buzz word. and this strategy is being developed on the fly. a coalition being developed on the fly, and that is not going to make for a smooth transition or a smooth operation in my opinion. >> you know, i actually had a lot of hope when the arab league, you know, came in and said, okay, we're supporting this. i thought, well, good, finally. what took you so long to get in the party? finally they're stepping up and getting involved in the relations and th

with the harvard economic historian neil ferguson. take a listen to this. >> when you look at america in a world in which china is rising, india is rising, what's your sense of where america stands in this new economic order? >> in some ways america stands on the edge of a cliff because great powers don't gently decline, they don't sorted of fade away over decades. history shows that they very often collapse quite suddenly. they lose power quite dramatically. that was the experience most recently of the soviet union. and i think when one looks at the fiscal position of the united states, with the vast explosion of debt before but particularly after the financial crisis, it's clear that there's a major risk there. >> all right. ben, cheer me up. tell me that neil ferguson is wrong. tell me things aren't that grim. >> he could not possibly be more wrong. countries collapse -- countries that are at war collapse, dictat dictatorships collapse, a free, prosperous industrial democracy does not collapse. we will probably lose our first place status as the world's largest industrial nation to china with

president obama did little to clear up the situation. he restated america's policy in libya. gadhafi must go. that led to more questions. how and who would drive him out? you see, the u.n. resolution limits military action to protecting innocent civilianings and does not authorize regime change. in addition, the president has said with absolute certainty, no u.s. troops will enter libya. can the rebels defeat gadhafi without greater intervention? many military analysts think it's unlikely. that braings us to the question tonight. what if there is a stalemate leaving gadhafi in power and libya split in two? is that victory or defeat given the statement that gadhafi must go? how will success be defined in this operation? will it turn into a long-term campaign? we go now to benghazi. what are they planning to do now? >> reporter: basically they want to fulfill their aim. what they feel and we see is the momentum appears to have shifted on saturday. gadhafi's forces were inside benghazi. at least 95 people killed in violence. then air strikes on sunday that brought his military machine to a grin

that gadhafi is in violation of the security council resolution but still no action by america or our allies. in the meantime, gadhafi proves again that while he may be brutal, corrupt, and quite possibly delusional, he's not stupid. look what gadhafi accomplished while the west dithered. just weeks ago, anti-gadhafi dissidents controlled the entire eastern part of the country from the center to tobruk in the east and con controlled mizurata and the east. after outgunned resistance fighters, gadhafi forces have marched east to ajdabiya, on the brink of benghazi. joining us from the rebel stronghold of benghazi, cnn international correspondent arwa damon. is fighting going on despite gadhafi's call for a cease-fire? >> reporter: combat is ongoing, and it is just it as intense as it has been since it began. according to the spokesman, military spokesman for the opposition, there is fighting in at least three parts of the country. to the west, mizurata, the area that's been reported on for quite some time, and around 100 miles west of where we are now, benghazi, the opposition stronghold. we we
